Obuasi might widely be known for its production of underground gold but what you might not know is that it has also produced a lot of talents precious than gold. One of such talents is Nana Akwasi Asiedu.
Nana Akwasi Asiedu Mensah, known in the showbiz world as Blezz Kid was born on 28th July 1996 to Mr. Joe Mensah and Mrs. Comfort Boansi in Obuasi. He is an Obuasi boy who has spent almost his entire life in the golden city. He started his formal education at the AngloGold Ashanti school. From there he went to Juaben Senior High School in 2012 and furthered on to the Accra Technical University in 2016 which he is in his final year.
Blezz Kid started singing at the age of six.
“I used to sing Kojo Antwi’s songs because my Dad used to have his CD so I listened to it always”, he revealed to Obuasitoday.com.
Blezz Kid was a chorister during his junior high school days at AngloGold Ashanti. In 2012, they were selected to represent Ghana at an event in Togo and that was the first time he sang before an audience.
“My talent and passion is the motivation behind my singing, because anytime I sing I feel like I have something great in me that I need to show to the world”, he said when asked about the motivation behind his singing.
Wizkid has had the greatest impact on Blezz Kid’s music life. He believes Wizkid’s rising from the streets to becoming a household name in Africa is a lot of inspiration for any upcoming musician.
In 2018, Blezz Kid got signed to the record label Mindmove Entertainment which he is the sole artiste on it. He has released two new singles with the label which are: WINNING, which was released on 27th December 2018 and ODO which was also released on 14th February 2019.
The WINNING track has had thousands of views and the Odo track is also performing great.
Blezz Kid has performed at the Akwaaba night at University of Education Winneba (Mampong Campus) and Grab De Mic at Kasoa among other events.
When asked for his advice for other musicians, he said
“The music industry in Ghana should have structures and lots of investments, there should be unity in the industry too.”
“They should do more classic and timeless tunes rather than a hit track that will only trend for three months, they should focus and do tracks that can be played the next 20 years to come”, he added.
